The goal of www.wheretogoinberlin.com is that you take full advantage of this wonderful city, and perhaps even lengthen your stay. To help you, you will find in the following pages and on our site all you need to know to get the most from your stay – as well as some wise words from those who ‘made’ Berlin. Exciting, expanding and dynamic. Berlin is the ideal place for IFA 2011 marks the tenth anniversary of Klaus Wowereit as Mayor of Berlin. On top of that he has worked as a politician for the people of the city for more than 20 years. IFA International asked him to describe the highlights of a long and distinguished career… There’s just one event that stands out above all others, even though it was 22 years ago, and that’s the fall of the Berlin Wall. That changed everything: the city began to evolve, and that process is still taking constant twists and turns. The city’s dynamic growth and change still manages to surprise people. Berlin is an open-minded, tolerant city, a city where innovation and new ideas are as much at home as science and research. And even when IFA visitors aren’t in town, we have people from more than 180 different countries living in Berlin. Berlin is the “place to be.” Klaus Wowereit Mayor of Berlin To the public coming to Berlin from the four corners of the world for IFA, what would you say is outwardly different about the city? IFA’s visitors come from all five continents, and for industry professionals in particular, IFA is top on the agenda: this is where they find the media, and – thanks to the city’s creative, youthful atmosphere – the media industry and the music and film business are playing an every greater role here. The games sector is growing by leaps and bounds, fashion and design have been strong for a long time now, and Berlin is a trade show venue with worldwide appeal for all kinds of reasons. Every year, Berlin and IFA are even more exciting than they were the year before. Berlin is the “place to be” for IFA, too. What is your message to the attendees of IFA 2011? Welcome to Berlin! I hope you’ll have lots of productive encounters and an exciting time in the exhibition halls, as well as at the show’s many events. Come back in 2012, and in the meantime, please tell everyone back home about our city’s exceptional atmosphere. 44
